I am not sure if many of you heard but on Black Friday there was a shooting in Toys R Us. It happend to be where I live and it's very frightening to think people would shoot up a place, let alone a toy store. The men were not robbing the place, their girlfriends got into an argument and they pulled guns on each other. They open fire in the store with many people in there shopping for Black Friday. They ended up killing each other. I think it's really sad how bad the world has become to have this happen even in childrens stores. And why were the men carrying guns to a toy store in the first place? How sad is it that grown men who had a long standing dispute couldn't settle it like real men? They ulitimatly killed each other and their children were their to witness and now will have those memories of seeing their fathers die. How sad. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think that things just seem to be getting worse and worse with crime with no change? http://www.mydesert.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2008812040313

Yes I heard about this. I think its sad that it had to happen on Black Friday and in a store where there is adults and little kids probably shopping. But they said it wasnt shopping related it was caused 2 be something else but they havent said yet...It's like what are these people thinkin? And what has this world come to? Ppl need to grow up and take their actions in a different wait instead of hurting one another.

It is very sad that the world has come to this. I only hope that it doesn't get worse but unless people break the cycle things will never change. Thanks for responding!

It's really sad to hear of such stories. Of all places for this to happen, they have to do it in a toy store, where there are going to be children around. They really were setting a bad example for children.

Yes, I think things are getting worse. That is so sad that those children had to see that. I don't know what people are thinking nowadays. Those poor children will have this to remember the rest of their lives. The world is getting bad. So much killing and fighting.

Yes I heard about this incident and the one in my hometown of New York. Bringing the body count for Black Friday to three. Tensions are really high in America right now. It's more complicated than just holiday shopping disputes. People are literally going mad from frustration over finances. Coupled with the greed of American society, we are bound to have casualties. It is still ridiculous though. And very sad that the children were affected by this as well. People don't think, and not to speak bad of the deceased, but these guys paid the ultimate price for their stupidity. Happy Holidays right?

I heard about the wal-mart incident as well. It's sad the people wake up thinking "Hey a nice day off and shopping" and these are the kind of days they have. I completely agree with you on them payin the ultimate price. Thanks for responding.
